Brain machine interface, engineered neural networks, nanotube - neuron interfaces
Our research activity concerns with the development of electronic nano devices which are designed to interface with brain cells and to record their activity. These devices have far reaching applications in the realm of understanding brain disorders, the effect of drugs on the brain and the possibility to build implantable electronic brain chips.
Our research also utilizes micro and nano miniaturization techniques for the realization of new devices. In addition to neuronal interfaces we also explore bio-mimetic approaches to construct functional devices such as sensitive accelerometers and radiation sensors based on nanoantennas.
